we had dinner here one night. We ordered fish & chips and penne with chicken. Both of our meals were very good. The waiter was friendly. The restaurant has a few cozy alcoves if you want more of a private dining experience.

Most impressive soup, made with beef stock the chef makes the proper way, from bones. Complemented by a pint of reasonably priced IPA, it was an enjoyable lunch.

We went into the Boondock restaurant to visit friends and came out being very impressed. Between the live music , great atmosphere, good food and wonderful staff we will definitely be going back next time in Sidney. Their clam chowder soup was to die for and can't thank them enough for accommodating our request of taking some home . Our... More

Pub food with live music at 6 PM that made dinner conversation a bit challenging. The food was good especially the burgers. One of our party of six was served the wrong entree and when hers finally arrived the five of us were finished with ours

Heard lots of good stuff about this place - stayed across the street and it looked like it had a lot of character. Not so much; just cause it is full of old dusty stuff doesn't give it character or charm. Seafood marinara pasta dish was special for the night, so my wife and i ordered it. Tasted like canned...

Nice spot with great pub fare. Recommended by a local and we weren't disappointed. French Onion soup was outstanding as was the French Dip sandwich. Great Caesar Salad, too. Priced right, also.

We were early for WA ferry so had lunch here as it was so close. It was a wonderful choice. The food was excellent. We both had the fish taco which was more than I could eat. My husband also added clam chowder which was delicious and creamy. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. The cost was, I think,... More

Hello landsendpathelen I'm sorry you had a bad experience. I'm not sure how to respond as we didn't have t bone steaks and never have had and our 2 for 1 steak special is a new York cut. In any case I apologize they were cooked incorrectly. We were extremely busy that day as it was our year end summer... More

Four of us had supper last evening, occupying our reserved table at 6.30. The server discovered us ten minutes later. We gave our beverage and food orders. Thirty five minutes later our food arrived and then our drinks with apologies for the break down of a machine at the bar. The special of two T Bone steaks for $23.00 had... More
